Both Bayonetta 2 and Hyrule Warriors will be receiving hardcover guides from Prima Games. These special hard back video game guides are available to pre-order from Amazon for around $29. Presumably they will be released to coincide with the games, with Hyrule Warriors coming September and Bayonetta 2 in October.

Several readers have brought it to my attention that Mario Kart 8 is doing extremely well on the Amazon best-sellers chart around the world. Though it’s slipped several places since the special Mario Kart Nintendo Direct, the game seems to be holding up well on the Amazon pre-order charts in the UK, US and Japan, amongst others.
Thanks, NintendoGuy and the others who sent this in.

Amazon UK is currently selling the Ice White original Nintendo 3DS console for the ultra-cheap price of £79.99. That’s the same price as the Nintendo 2DS. So if you’ve yet to purchase a Nintendo 3DS, now is the perfect time to do so.
Update: Nintendo has refuted the Amazon statement and has said, “the launch date of Mario Kart 8 has not changed.”
A number of gamers on the NeoGAF forums are reporting that Amazon has begun sending out emails stating that Mario Kart 8 is coming sometime before May 30th. The retailer says that we should expect the game between April 16 and April 19. This has led many to believe that Nintendo has pushed the game forward to sometime next month. Amazon support also sound confident of a new date.
It looks as though the highly anticipated Mario Kart 8 might be sold out on Amazon.com. The game is currently only available via email alerts, meaning if someone cancels their pre-order you may be able to get a copy. Whether it’s sold out due to volumes of pre-orders, or is just a stock issue, remains to be seen.
Update: The sales rank is 415 so it’s most likely a stock issue.
